Vidtel Intros Native WebRTC Gateway to Enterprise Video Conferencing Infrastructure
Dec 04, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Vidtel announced an addition to its gateway service: The built-in ability to connect WebRTC-enabled browsers to enterprise video conferencing infrastructure.
According to a release, Vidtel is bridging WebRTC browsers with 3rd party video conferencing infrastructure such as Cisco, Polycom, or Vidtel's own MeetMe service without the need for plugins.
Vidtel's WebRTC implementation lets anyone open a browser and enter into a video conferencing session with enterprise systems (SIP, H.323) as well as web/client-based systems (Skype, Google Talk or other WebRTC endpoints). No downloads or registrations needed. Now the potential exists to tie together billions of browsers with millions of standards-based video conferencing endpoints.
"Vidtel just made WebRTC an option for every video solution out there," said Dave Michels, Principal Analyst at TalkingPointz. "Vidtel was already a leader in interconnecting video islands, but this solution will open video silos to just about every desktop, tablet, and mobile device with a browser. The service effectively integrates the hype and promise of WebRTC with established video solutions."
Vidtel is a provider of cloud video conferencing services.
